Our "Green Your Diet" banner helped to lead the march.

…is exactly what more than 40,000 individuals chanted this past Sunday as they marched on Washington to demonstrate to President Obama their stance on climate change, and FARM was there educating the American public how a change in diet can change the climate.

Love is in the air and we’ve got some great ideas to help you and your loved one celebrate without breaking the bank.

Spend the day with new friends. Plan a day trip (or even a weekend trip) for you and your special someone to visit a nearby farm animal sanctuary or other animal rescue shelter. There’s nothing more rewarding than volunteering your services to an organization in need. Spend the day surrounded by loving animals who will never again know cruelty, only kindness.

Give a tribute donation. Make a donation to your favorite organization in honor of a loved one. When you make a tribute donation to FARM, we will send a personalized thank you card recognizing the person being honored. Or create your own card for that special touch.

Create a delicious home-cooked vegan meal. Start planning your special dinner today with our easy-to-follow recipes from LiveVegan.org and MeatoutMondays.org. Your partner will thank you for a spectacular night in, when they taste these Vegetable Lasagna Cupcakes or how about Grilled Jerk Tofu Steaks? And don’t forget dessert! Try this chocolate-lovers’ recipe for a Raw Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganche.

Enjoy a night out. Make reservations at your favorite vegan hotspot and maybe even catch a movie or live music.

And for gift givers try these items that should guarantee some extra snuggle time (and they’re all vegan of course): chocolates and other sweets (Rescue Chocolate, Allison’s Gourmet, Sweet & Sara), perfume, body products (Vibrant Naturals, EcoBella), flowers, soy candles, a good book.

Regardless of how you spend time together, make sure your mate knows just how much they are loved. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Goodbye 2012, hello 2013! A New Year and a new crew for the 10 Billion Lives Tour!

Monica and I (Andy) flew in to Dallas, TX just before the New Year to meet up with FARM’s Director of Outreach Programs, Alex Felsinger, who showed us the ropes and sent us on our way to reach the hearts and minds of caring people all over the country. In between a few minor repairs we were able to grab meals with some incredible vegan activists including Nora Kramer of Mercy For Animals and our host for a few nights, Natalie, who holds her own pay-per-view events at the University of Texas at Arlington.  Finally we were off to Austin where we were able to hold a week’s worth of street-side events while we waited for the new school semester to begin.
